Aunty

Aunty is a new senior citizen and loving this phase of her life. Less responsibilities, less fear of being weird, able to do more of the things that I want to do! Older, yes, slower, yes, but life is even more wonderful in my golden years and I look forward to even goldener ones.

My friend Larry is a financial guru.  He believes in putting aside some money in a savings account for spending before any other ...

RR Accounts in jeopardy

Aunty signed up for Oceanic's Business Class internet service and planned to terminate the residential Oceanic internet service.  However, those plans were put to a screeching halt (have picture of road runner) by the inability to transfer over my hawaii.rr.com email addresses because our Hawaii Time Warner Cable does not own or have anything to do with the rrs. Yikes.  Really yike, yike.  All 9(!) of Aunty ...

Mantra while buying a car

From Jason Leister of Early to Rise, I have learned a mantra that I shall incorporate the next time I bargain for our next car. You see, I am always looking for the next good used car to own.  Since I have yet to find the perfect vehicle, I show up at dealer sales and often times surprise Uncle with "our" new used car in the driveway.  Most of the time, Uncle is not happy with my choices, but since I am the ...

Color Code

Ian Plummer of Color Code gave a fascinating lesson on personality/core motives using the colors Red, White, Blue, and Yellow as indicators.  The theory is that every person is born with a certain core value and life's experiences, upbringing, etc. influence how we act and react.  Knowing what our "color" is can help us understand ourselves and knowing the color of people you associate with can guide us to ...

Retirement planning

Young people have no clue, and I can say this because I used to be a young people. I never thought, when I was in my 20's, that I would be my mother's age.  I was just - and always just the age that I was in at the moment.  I would look at older people, even those just 15 years older than me, and disassociate with the reality that I will be their age in 15 years.  Of course it would happen someday, I though ...
